anvilfire image collection - Signed European 5th Foot Anvil

European 5th Foot Signed Anvil

Signed European 5th Foot Anvil

Another graceful European, possibly German anvil with a "5th Foot". This anvil has a typical early edge hardy hole that penetrates the side of the anvil (inset detail).

. . has a name and date inscribed on it. The anvil reads,

"C : BOUIUS 1819"


This anvil has a very small 3/8 - 7/16" (10 to 11 mm) side penetration hardy hole. These are punched and chiseled through the top plate and exit out the side of the anvil. The side opening is required so that scale and pieces of steel punched through the hole can fall out.
